This page is dedicated to our 4-legged companions! It took us a long time to realize that as much as we love our dogs and they love us, we were treating other animals with cruelty and carelessness. Cows, chickens, pigs and all other farm animals have the same emotions and desires as these beautiful pooches. But the Trio was very patient as we made the connection and now as we knit with the dogs at our feet, we feel good knowing that the yarn we use didn’t exploit anyone. They are superheros and superheroines in their own right, and although their humans are the alphas of the pack, they claim to rule the roost! Be sure to check out Let Sleeping Dogs Lie… for a continually updated pictography/journal of the pooches.. And now I’ve added a page dedicated to doggie treats, since they seem to be more frequent here at the Primate – check out the The Pooch ate my Homework page! 🙂
First off, we have Mocha (aka Small), and her superheroine alter-ego is ‘The Wiggler.’ Her powers include driving one absolutely insane by licking to the point of turning over government secrets, as well as the ability to bounce from her hind legs like Tigger twice as high as she is tall. One way to attempt to divert the licking is to pet her, but this doesn’t always work – she sneaks in licks and we are all powerless against it. Although she is getting older, she can fly when she’s feeling extra spunky. But the greatest of her powers is the ability to continuously wiggle and the hypnotizing property of her tail..although she can wag from side to side, she can hypnotize her foes with a circular motion of the tail. She is a Princess by all accounts, and a rather cheeky one at that! Don’t be fooled by her cute and innocent appearance…She can strike at any moment!
Next we have Copper (aka Medium; 2000-2008). His superhero alter-ego is ‘The Bulldozer.’ His powers also lie in a powerful and hypnotizing tail (a trait which was passed down to his daughter Mocha), the exception is that the hypnosis only works on other canines, mostly his cousin Kirsche. His wagging is powerful enough to bruise a leg or poke an eye out, human or canine, thus defeating his foes by blinding them or affecting their ability to stand. He enjoys dancing with his human and smelling the roses, but in a manly way. He is low to the ground, therefore has a very stable center of gravity. He chooses to bulldoze his foes as they are in motion, usually fleeing or attempting to avert his headbutting. His big and round brown eyes can fool anyone into thinking he is not so smart, but he’s as cunning as they come..
Last, but certainly not least, we have Kirsche (aka Large). Kirsche’s superheroine personality is ‘Galootius Maximus.’ Her super powers include drowning foes in drool, burying them in her extra skin and crushing them beneath her giant paws. However, she’s easily defeated by offers of peanut butter, as she will stop whatever she’s doing to get her chompers on it. She’s so big that The Bulldozer can walk underneath her belly, but she still likes to pretend to be a lap dog.
